Clams on the What?? This month’s tableau is a Barbie homage to Bette Midler. Once upon a time… Bette and the Harlettes did a stage show much like this! Mermaids!! Mermaids in wheelchairs!! And the happy audience! Show Biz!!!

God-I love it! What a hoot! Just when I think you cannot possibly get more creative, you do! Just when I think I know which B.T. is my favorite, I see a new one and have a new favorite! That jeweled, beaded work is too much!

Thank my inspiration-Bette Midler! She actually dressed herself and back up singers this way, in the 70’s???

I really enjoy thinking of new ways to display the Barbies. The outfits this month are almost all by Mattel–with some hand made by other doll fans.

I especially love the gold ones…the costumes remind me of Claudette Colbert’s “Cleopatra”!

Smashing, and so reminiscent of Bette’s show. I know she would love it. The colors! The shimmer!! The fins!!!
